Obama And Romney Campaigns Launch New Websites For Presidential Debate

The nationally televised 90-minute debate is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. PDT.

the nation will get the chance to see President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney debate for the first time tonight.

The nationally televised 90-minute debate is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. PDT. All the major networks are broadcasting the live debate hosted at the University of Denver.

Wednesday's format will see PBS newsman Jim Lehrer moderate. He is slated to open each 15-minute segment with a question, and Obama and Romney each will have two minutes to answer. It will be Lehrer’s job to keep the conversation going and to intervene if one candidate goes on too long.

In preparation for tonight’s event, the two campaigns on Wednesday announced new websites today — http://debates.mittromney.com and http://barackobama.com/debate.

Tonight’s debate marks the first in a series scheduled this month. Romney and Obama will debate again Oct. 16 in Hempstead, N.Y., and Oct. 22 in Boca Raton, Fla. Vice President Joe Biden and nominee Paul Ryan have their lone debate on Oct. 11 in Danville, Ky.

Fifty-two million people tuned in to the first scheduled presidential debate four years ago, with 80 percent of the nation's adults saying they watched at least a bit of the debates, The Associated Press reported.

The Patriot 2:56 pm on Friday, October 19, 2012 Anyone that believes that Republicans hate police and firemen and teachers is misinformed. We loathe their corrupt communist unions, not the hard working Americans. We stand United against communist UNIONS . YES ON 32! Hey " Patriot", Real Patriots are ones who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests, the contention that true patriots would be willing to do anything for their country....Oh thats right youre an Republican!..lol... I understand...BTW as a 26yr Law enforcement vet, My fellow firemen,teachers and all who make a difference in society, through education and public saftey, respect what our Union do for us, to ensure fairness in the workplace..In the public sector, people are kicked to the curb in a hot minute...Ask Mitt he did it!...BTW Communism only works for ants, bees and mole rats. which one are you? Introduce any individuality into the economic system and it breaks down to form anarchy or totalitarianism. No communist system has ever worked in practice...You're in the wrong America..lol..And Yes on 30 no on 32 homie!...lol..
John Galt October 20, 2012 at 01:24 AM
"I understand...BTW as a 26yr Law enforcement vet" As someone that has fought corruption for almost that long, what I hear being broadcasted from you is "corruption, corruption, corruption" We all know that politicians or law enforcers don't start out being corrupt but temptation sometimes leads people in positions of power there. Unions are corrupt and are not fighting for the people, they fight for political power and just look at the SEIU protestor signs and the signs at the occupy protests. Unions have went FULL Communist. I will agree though, that it DOES NOT work here in America. Go sell your crap to someone that will buy it!! ☞☞☞☞☞YES 32, NO ON 30 ☜ ☜ ☜ ☜ ☜

Popeye I want to personally bring come crow to you if Obama loses and watch you eat it. I know there is a chance he may win, but Romney is giving him a big scare. Will you eat it if I get it?
Anon October 20, 2012 at 01:59 AM
yOu know Mitt did not take a salary when he was governor? Obama will get a bigger pension than he will. Did you know Meg Whitman does not take a salary at HP either? Republicans are honorable.

Diana October 20, 2012 at 02:49 AM
Dennis, we all are hard working Americans, been this way for years and still doing it, for God's sake what is your point? You have been on here for days rambling and trying to school all of us, get over yourself, we are individuals and although your ego might tell you different we don't need you to direct us into what is right as an individual and an American. You have you beliefs for God sakes let us have ours.
Anon October 20, 2012 at 02:50 AM
SB ignore him. He is a racist. Someone in his life discriminated against him at one time or another and he holds it against all of us. The thing is, it had nothing to do with the color of his skin. It was his God awful personality!
Diana October 20, 2012 at 02:51 AM
